Who here has siblings or nephews/nieces who do nothing but watch this shit on their iPads or whatever?
>when he actually plays with toys instead of watching this shit he pretends to be one of the people in these videos
>talks about the properties of the toy as if he were on a youtube video and namedrops shit like ebay
This has to be some kind of retarded foreign scam. I just can't fathom the amount of autism it would take for that kind of shit to be at over half a billion views.
>getting that excited over shitty, filth covered pieces of plastic
>retarded foreign scam
Oh, like these?
There are 260,000 results for "spiderman wheels on the bus" by the way
My nephew do. He's now 13, when he was a kid he loved cartoons, sci-fi movies, playing videogames, now all he do is watching people playing videogames for him, watching terrible yt comedians reviewing movies he don't even care to watch, sometimes this reviews are longer than the movie itself, I don't know what's the fucking deal in watching people do the fun stuff, it's like watching people having sex, who could possibly have interest in?
There's companies out there you can pay to increase your views. Type "buy Youtube views" into google. This playdoh video must be a decent company to not get caught.
Same way people make millions of fake twitter and facebook accounts to follow businesses.
they're just whoring themselves to their target demographic - retarded kiddies
this is what little kids like and it's pretty easy money for the people cranking out these garbage videos
>see niece watching this video
WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING
WE SHOULD GET ON THIS SCAM
FUCK IT IM STARTING MY OWN YT TOY REVIEWING CHANNEL
GONNA BE DROWNING IN YOUTUBE CASH
While there are some significant downsides to the overuse of iPad and tablets, kids who are growing up with them now will probably have a more intuitive understanding of technology when they are adults. This is especially true if their school boards use tablets to teach visual computer coding.
>are those people in the comments just bots and stuff too?
Most of them, probably.
I remember seeing a forum linked to /v/ that had hundreds of fake accounts posting tons of threads and posts so that the owner could get advertising money.
Apparently, the bots would go to other gaming forums and copy their threads/messages so the fake threads looked legit and looked like they had actually discussion, but it was all fake. I imagine something similar is probably done with youtube.
>using streamlined Apple devices purely for content consumption
>intuitive understanding of technology
You're probably not wrong, but I'd be willing to bet that kids who grew up with IBMs and computer towers would have a much better understanding of computers
>I'd be willing to bet that kids who grew up with IBMs and computer towers would have a much better understanding of computers
95% people you meet that would be described as "good with computers" just know how to get windows to do what they want and know how to google the right keywords
>there's "challenge" videos on youtube where people bait little girls into doing seemingly innocent things for new fap material
Those are just allegations
I have to disagree, at least from my persepective, technology got dumbed down and users with it, I teach in a class of 21 12yo and almost no one knows what the extension of a file is, when I asked "Do you use internet?" half of them replied "Nah, I use YT, whatsapp and Ask"
Is Dirty Dan behind the infamous "sock challenge"?
>Children attracted to touchscreens over movies or even standard video games
>They live vicariously through devices browsing sites like youtube
>When they want to play they browse these types of videos
>This is basically normal for most youth
Next gen is gonna be so fucked up
Probably made by sweatshop Chinese animators
To play devil's advocate here, what do you think the percent 10-15~ years ago would be?
I can remember some kids and folks just really not being "internet" people. They might have used it a bit, but just to get what they needed done.
Check this shit out:
I have the same. I didn't realise it was a thing but the number of videos always surprised me. It's like an endless stream of people opening surprise eggs.
The next generation is going to be consumer as fuck.
>this is a kids channel
also check out the comments
it's like an AI that went crazy and started trying to poison the younglings' minds
>virtual toy playing
well, i jerk it to porn everyday so i cant talk
Kek, my first post's handle is cum2soon. How did they know?
A TWO HOUR CARTOON ABOUT A RED BICYCLE BUT NOT JUST ONE VIDEO AND A WHOLE CHANNEL ABOUT A RED SHAPESHIFTER
Who makes these?
>an entire hour of goofy public domain music and anonymous silent hands making playdoh shit
>over half a billion fucking views
But why? Is it some kind of laundering scheme? Why spend money on more views for this?
search for johnny johnny on the /co/ archives, they have threads with these dumb kid videos all the time
shout out to humpty dumpty at the dippity doo club may you go fuckself
t. father of 3 yr old
oh shit you guys haven't posted the best one yet
So they literally take all posts from recent 4chan threads and replace the word 4chan and whatnot into sheeky forums? This is kinda spooky and not sure if legal
My 3 year old nephew is patrician he watches this top cunny daily: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsGDSCIPfx4
He also watches a fuck ton of the "giant egg surprise opening" videos. It's amazing, there's a whole youtube genre fuelled by toy companies giving parents their latest toys to upload videos of their kids playing with them, and some of those videos get 30 million viewers. This video alone has over 100 million views: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzpihaxesM8
Oh my god...
>Some spic who made the site for free ad rev money
and finally the crowning achievement
His fucking channel is one of those weird toy reviewing things too. In fact, these comment sections are always chalk full of toy reviewers.
What if everyone in this thread is a bot....
.... and I'm the only real person?
What causes somebody, when given the choice to commit suicide or make a video like this, to make the video?
These videos are essentially a "Let's Play" video game upload, but targeted at children with physical toys. This is further proof that video games are a pre-adolescent hobby and can never be considered art.
I love videos like this tbqh. They're soothing in an autistic kind of way.
>children watch other people play with toys instead of playing with toys
>teens watch other play video games instead of playing video games
>manchildren on /tv/ watch people talk about movies instead of talking about movies
Why? Someone explain this phenomenon to me please. I don't give me that "lel it's just like when people watch NFL XD." People watch NFL because they themselves are incapable at playing at that high of a caliber. Not true for the amateur film critics who barely know more about movies than the average joe
I like to take every youtube let's play douchefag and stuck them in some remote place where the only thing they hear is each others annoying mumbling autistic voices and they slowly realize how retarded they actually sound to normal human beings.
>the gaming beaver
She looks literally exactly how she sounds.
>aunt and her kids come to dinner with our family
>her two kids walk into the restaurant
>one(9 years old) has giant headphones plugged into his smartphone and he's watching youtube videos/songs, just staring down at the phone and barely looking up
>other one (5 years old) has giant headphones on plugged into his DS and he's playing some game(and yelling about it)
pretty embarrassing senpai
whats up with this pewdiepie guy anyway? i know my best friends little brother watches him constantly but i checked out his channel and seems like half of this shit isnt even about video games
Its hysterical how addictive these handheld devices are and just how early they take hold. You'll see 2 year olds run away with smartphones and hide any where they can fit (closets, crawlspaces, etc.) and just stare blankly at the screen. It could be locked and the kid will still be entranced by it.
my housemate is 20 and even though he speaks dutch perfectly he will say let's play one liners in English while watching someone play a game or when he himself plays. He literally cannot shut up. He only ever laughs when he's watching Game Grumps
He used to do let's plays all the time, but as his fanbase got bigger he started to realize they were too busy staring at him to pay attention to what was going on.
Made his job a shitload easier.
>8 year old brother
>watches videos on youtube about Valve, Gabe Newell and the games related
>i have them all on my steam account
>he has started playing them all
>mfw he's playing HL2
>not afraid of headcrab zombies
These videos are a Godsend if you ever find yourself alone and just need to use the bathroom or do something alone. It's basically cruise control for keep a kid docile and occupied.
Video is literally made for kids who parents let them watch youtube videos all day. There like commercials but on another level and shes making bank from them all promoting there shit.
Can I do this to hmm
This chick, holy fucking shit. I've watched way too many of her videos just absolutely perplexed at how popular it is.
All she does is opens the product poorly then coats it with playdoh. Funnily enough all she does now is opening egg videos.
MFW she fucking sold out
you're literally part of the problem
holy shit, you're delusional
Imagine, a decade from now 4chan posters will make nostalgia threads based on these videos.
Kids like Mayas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sc8kuWrx7Xk) will be to them what Jason from Power Rangers was to 90s kid.
you know how kids are obsessed with cars and nursery rhyme videos?
people upload videos of modded GRAND THEFT AUTO. and it actually gets fucking tonnes of views. more views than normal GTA videos.
its very odd.
Finger Family always seems to get involved.
Not Mary Had a Little Lamb.
Not Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
Not fucking ABC.
Finger Family. That's one of the weirder things about this for me.
>What's stopping me from making some of these extremely low effort videos and making billions of dollars?
My 4 year old nephew was watching these unboxing videos and they were making the two little toys fight and he was loving it.
I thought to myself, does this person know that their content is being enjoyed by 4 year olds? Is that the point?
>this is nieces favorite video
>watches it constantly
>I never pay attention
>get asked to try to find the "stacking cups"
>find them on ebay for 100$
>actually watch the video for myself
It's just some asshole who bought blank Matryoshka dolls, glued the characters on, and clear coated it. Then he fills them with plastic eggs filled with cheap random toys and overlays voices from another toy over that and this stupid pop up toy at the end of the video. Dude's trying to rip people off for 100 bucks when you can make the shit yourself for 10. Not only is it the dumbest shit I've seen in a while, but the creepy grown man is just a scam artist who disabled comments and likes on the video that's been viewed 16,852,323 times so people can't even let other people know what's up.
This might be the greatest scam to get into, guys. Just get cheap toys, "unbox" them, and watch that Youtube money start to pile up.
I want to fucking die.
I put so many hours into learning my art and producing good content and I can't even get paid for it yet this shit gets hundreds of thousands of dollars.
>savagely ripped the adresses off the box
wow psycho cunt
>buying stuff cheap from chinese ebayers
She doesnt realize those were in a chinese factory dumpster. you can see they are all dirty and stained, probably with some nasty toxic shit.
It hypnotizes kids in a very strange way. I can't make sense of it. Maybe there's some sort of subliminal programming going on.
why are the comments so creepy and from weird channel names? Anyone remember those weird kids games videos where they were probably created by AI? They were all on this one youtube channel called KIDS something? Can someone post them?
BUT WHY!? I don't get it. You might think that the majority of the views on these videos are bots, but my nieces watch the same few videos over and over and over. Even if they're not actually watching them they want them to be on in the background while they do other things. I don't get it. It can't just be them. I'm sure there are thousands and thousands of parents whose kids make them sit through this trash.
Your parents and grandparents all harped on about how back in "their" day they used to run around and play outside
Now though you get to be the one to moan on about how at least when you were a kid, you played with toys instead of watching videos of other people doing it
I can see the fun for a kid of watching someone else playing a game you don't own because it saves you asking your parents to buy it for you or even a new console and maybe they're better at playing it than you so they progress faster and it's kind of like you're hanging out with a friend listening to them talk about the game.
But what the fuck is the point of these unboxing toy videos other than like for adults to see if it's suitable to give to their kids or whatever?
What's the point of watching someone else unpack something that the only fun of it is you physically owning it and fiddling about with it in your own hands?
Or are these kids growing up on iPads and phones and shit so early that they are entirely visually based and watching someone else enjoying a toy might as well be real to them and they dont even bother to physically interact with toys anymore?
Jesus, imagine in like 15 years time when little kids grow up using virtual reality headsets all their life.
I thought I was messed up and an anti-social womanchild because my parents just let me watch TV all day but at least there were periods when I had to leave the TV and go outside with them or eat a meal with them or go to my room, but it seems little kids now adays LITERALLY only stop looking at a screen when they are asleep. There's going to be some massive autism in the future.
Can we at least agree that Children's toy videos are more professional and authentic than video game let's players? The focus of kids videos is almost always the advertised subject, whereas video game uploaders are megalomaniacs concerned only with crafting an online identity and selling themselves.
Yeah this. I was seeing a girl and one time she came to my place and wanted to watch some shitty animated movie about a blob from space or something, voiced by the bazinga guy. She found it hilarious and admitted she'd seen it over 40 times. Then we watched Battleship. Which she had also seen dozens of times.
I literally cut off all contact after that night. I don't understand how people can be like that.
The great thing about ASMR videos is that the uploaders aren't even hiding the fact its a form of pornography. Uploaders like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtvjfuUS7qc accept donations so you can find out what she uses to masturbate.
I'd say there's equally little effort involved. Most of these unboxing videos are obviously one take. Why would you keep the take where you accidentally ripped the door off the fridge and pretended it didn't happen?
My 3 year old watches all these videos and then plays with her own toys while talking in a horrible fake US accent. We are bongs BTW.
Her favourite vids are of Disney princesses being kidnapped. Some of them rusley my Jimmy's.
Its all fucked up
I don't know your niece's age but it's a real common thing amongst little kids. My daughter used to watch Nemo 3-4 times in a row every day for weeks unti she get bored and got a new DVD to get obsessed with (wich was How To Train Your Dragon). Every kid in her kindergarten had its own movie that watch constantly, my mother told me that I did the same with audio-fairy tales.
I think some people simply enjoy a form of routine. They drink the same coffee every morning, they tune into the same radio station/podcast on their way to work, they have the same lunch during their breaks... It just goes on. Some people endlessly watch or read the same material for years because it's familiar and comfortable.
I don't have a problem with kids watching movies over and over again. At least there's a story there. There's usually a lesson to be learned and some actual talent went into creating it. These things are just awful and pointless.
I know you're being ironic. But jew have pretty much started the business of selling absolute junk and stuff no one needs and convincing people to buy them. This was over the course of the last 200 years. They're also major players in creating what we know today as fashion trends in order to continually sell clothes.
>real common thing amongst little kids
this. during my last vacation I learned that my neighbor's daughter has the habit of playing the same kids youtube video singalong every morning at full blast in their stereo. it's an almost obsessive thing
Nobody. Those people who are being watched watching actual shit get done aren't actually watching anything. They're just reacting to their own imaginations while the view watches them.
>very simple thing to make at home. You could even make it with the kids as an activity.
she wants the 'official sets' in the package and shit, also she spends more time watching playdoh videos than playing with the playdoh
There are in-show advertisements on reality shows all the time, and that's not counting commercial breaks.
Hell, one episode of survivor had the teams watch Grown Ups 2 in advance. They were told to look like they were enjoying it.
I don't think the kids that watch these videos actually ever end up wanting to buy any of it. I assume it's a burnt out mom that gives her kid an ipad and puts on a play list of some Brazilian lady opening up kids toys.
Youtube is on peoples TV's these days through either their Blu-ray players or Roku, whatever. Parents plays these videos all day for their kids and it just goes through that specific channels playlist over and over again.
So what will the kids that grow up with things like this be like when they're older?
I mean I'm not gonna claim the things I played with as a kid were somehow smart but at least I was doing things, not staring into nothingness.
Since we're on the topic of youtube, in order to give a video a view you don't actually need to watch the hole video right you just need to open it? Because it's weird how often a video has much less views than the channel has subscribers, like sometimes it's not even half.
This shit right here is why some times I get freaked out and think T.V. is a force of pure evil.
Even the most hyperactive kids will sit down in front of a screen for 10 hours watching shit like this. That as well as the proven effectiveness of subliminal messaging and all the money and research that has gone into marketing..
>these days, the best way to gain access to unlimited prime JB pussy is to do shitty lets play/challenges videos full of pre-school tier meme humor and become e-celeb
when did everything go so wrong?
Didn't PBS run the same episode of Blues Clues over and over again for a day or two as an experiment, and they found that the children would watch the same episode anyway even though they had already seen it?
Is it possible to raise a kid to not be autistic in this day and age? Is this just the result of lazy parenting and this can all be prevented? Will interacting with other kids make them want to watch the same videos over and over again?
It goes in cycles until society is destroyed and the next one rises from the ashes and resolves to never repeat their mistakes ever again until a few hundred years later.
>Will interacting with other kids make them want to watch the same videos over and over again?
That's the rub. You can parent as best you can, but once you put them out in the real world, in school and everything, and then it's out of your hands.
i don't even think society has to collapse entirely. i completely agree with the idea of things going in cycles though. like how the early 1900s where really sexually repressive and then in the 60's everyone fucked everyone and in retrospective that time period now seems to have been too lax on sex morals.
same probably goes for parenting. now that people like you or me (and others i'm sure) see that shit is going downhill a oppositional movement will happen in some way. maybe the next generation will raise their kids in nature. entirely.
That's insane. I remember being a kid playing Half-Life 1 on my dad's PC and I would literally refuse to progress through the first part of the game because the fucking Vortigaunts used to scare me too much, let alone the headcrab zombies or God forbid, the Nihilanth.
In fact I remember when I first played Half-Life 2 I was shitting myself because of Ravenholm. The screaming, the blood they were covered in, the open chest, to imagine an eight year old just not being bothered by any of that nowadays is weird to think of.
